Former Cibola restaurateur to open new event center

Former Cibola restaurateur Kevin Brown is opening a new business.

Brown, who in recent years has done catering, is opening an event venue in the former Asia Town Buffet space at 6160 E. Central.

He’s not sharing plans yet, but there’s major remodeling work going on in the 12,000-square-foot building.

It sounds like the name of the business is going to be the Omni Center.

There’s an Omni Center Facebook page. It doesn’t list Brown as the owner, but it has his phone number.

The Facebook page, which was created last week, says the business does weddings, events and catering.

“We are a new events center,” the page says, “with seating up to 500 in our large main space, as well as space for smaller parties and events. With a 4000 sq.ft. kitchen!”
